Mark....your memory is failing on remembering crucial quotes....   what 
Senator Mack said
about backcountry lovers in the Upper Peninsula was a bit more sharp....

"They come here with a can of beans, a five dollar bill and a pair of 
underwear and they don't change either
of them."

But the classic Mackism that is my favorite kind of reminds me of G. W. 
Bush right now:

"They [environmentalists] do to this country what others would do with bombs."
